Carjack suspect still in custody

Man dubbed the "Falconridge rapist" has been in custody since June 8 incident in Langley City.

A man dubbed the “Falconridge rapist” for terrorizing a Calgary neighbourhood seven years ago, raping two women at knifepoint and assaulting another, made a brief appearance in Surrey Provincial Court on Thursday.

Andrew Aurie Jefferson, 28, is charged with two counts of robbery, uttering threats, possession of property obtained by crime, assault causing bodily harm, and assault with a weapon  in the violent carjacking of a woman in Langley City on June 8. He remains behind bars since his arrest that night. He makes his next appearance on July 19.

After being released from jail, Jefferson relocated to Surrey — something that outraged Mayor Dianne Watts, given the violence of the crimes committed in Calgary.
